Tonight Scotland will be celebrating Burns Night - a celebration of the poet Robbie Burns. Robbie Burns became a Freemason in 1741. In 1801, after his death in 1796, a group of his masonic friends gathered to celebrate his life and work - Haggis was served and his works recited and sung. The tradition has continued ever since throughout the world on his birthday - 25th January.
